Pajamas Media brings to mind an old joke. Man drives down the same street on his way to work every morning, and each time he does, an annoying little yappy dog comes tearing out of its yard. The dog chases down the street after his car, every morning like clockwork, all the while barking that annoying little yappy dog bark: yap yap yap yap yap yap yap. Finally one day, the man stops his car, gets out and says to the dog, “There. You caught it. Now what are you going to do with it?”
The joke ends there, but one can readily imagine the dim, confused look on the yappy dog’s face. And that seems to be where our friends at Jammies media find themselves these days. They caught the car, and they have no idea what to do next. And I have to say, it’s been a disappointment to me, personally — I expected to have great fun mocking the whole thing, but it’s not really even interesting enough to mock. It’s bad, but it’s not Ed Wood bad or Showgirls bad — it’s just boring bad.
The hubris of its founders is another matter entirely, of course.
